The Storm
by Lisa Saberan
The eyes,
The eyes will deceive you,
Kindness, compassion, love you may see,
But look closer—
A strong storm is merging,
Emotions converging,
The wind is blowing,
Waves rise high,
A tempest has arisen,
No reason has been given,
For this sudden storm,
Emotions so long submerged,
Rising to the surface,
How to control this erratic course,
This fearsome force,
Helpless to control it anymore,
Try to close the door,
Keep it at bay,
Don’t let it stay,
Push it down,
Push it back,
Tired and empty,
Where to turn,
Where to turn,
Yes, now I see Him
He has spoken to my storm
Calm and peace return
